Welcome to the New Year!

With much hope and joy we welcome the year 2023.

After the difficult years due to the pandemic, we can now probably plan more and look forward to many reunions, such as our meeting with radio amateurs in the IPA from May 11-14 at the 42nd IPARC national meeting in Holzminden.

Unfortunately, Russia's war against Ukraine caused us to cancel the IPA contest last year. We very much hope to have offered a reasonably adequate alternative with our activity weekend and are now looking forward to the IPARC Contest 2023.

May 2023 bring peace in Europe and the world, give us the opportunity to practice our hobby without restrictions, and also to be able to maintain and establish contacts with our Ukrainian friends again.

Best wishes and greetings to all of you and your families for the year 2023, best health and see you / hear you soon.

The emergency radio group (BOS-ARSA = Österreichischer Amateurfunkverein der Behörden und Organisationen mit Sicherheitsaufgaben) of our neighbors from OE8, around IPA friend OE8GWQ, Wolfgang, presented the club at the 65th IPA World Congress 2022 and received an award:

IPA Technology Innovation Award 2022 for IPA participation in the Creation of a civil emergency amateur radio network

On behalf of the IPARC-DL, I congratulated Wolfgang and his team on this great award.

News from the UK

Dear colleagues.

Recently Horst, DL1GBP, received an e-mail from James, GM0GMN, who told him news from IPA and IPARC UK section:

While I have been a member of the UK IPARC for many years the club was not very active. In the summer time we heard the very sad news that Tom, G0NSY, had become a silent key. I received a telephone call from IPA asking if I would take over the running of the club and I agreed. We have made some changes and we have a Facebook page with the link below.

Please follow this link to IPARC UK on Facebook

We also have a callsign GM4IPA

We now have 80 members and a Sunday net at 1900 hrs on 3.770 Mhz and DMR TG 23597.

Please keep in touch and Merry Christmas.

Best regards,
James, GM0GMN
